I will be coming to the city and having dinner with family on Friday May 1st. Looking for somewhere within walking distance or a short cab ride from our hotel at S Franklin and W Madison. Can someone tell me if this area is referred to as the West Loop?
The food needs to be approachable (nothing too out there). Italian is a plus but not necessary. Ideally I'd like mains to be less than $30 and I'd like a quieter place so we can chat. Reservations are a must.
The only thing I've found so far that hits on all of these criteria is Osteria La Madia. Can anyone speak to the food and ambience of this restaurant?
Much appreciated, thanks!
